Storage constrained applications

Limited storage performance forces organizations to be in a constant state of monitoring and tuning and implement workarounds making databases exponentially more complex to deploy and manage. The resulting environment is expensive, batched, and rigid with limited ability to support business agility.


Accelerate performance and simplify design

Dell EMC DSSD D5’s revolutionary database performance accelerates analytics to real-time, greatly reduces the need for monitoring, tuning and complex, costly workarounds, and delivers agility by simplifying the way teams design and build databases.

"DSSD provides a performance capability that exceeds our expectations. We anticipate DSSD D5 to provide at least a 10x performance improvement over our existing analytic platforms."

Doug Babb, Chief IT Systems Architect, Systems Implementers Inc.,

contractor supporting the USAF and initiator of the Project BonFire

“We are really excited with the results of the STAC benchmark which demonstrate how Dell EMC DSSD can further improve the performance of existing applications built on kdb+. Our financial services customers are always on the lookout for new architectures that combine low operational latencies and high data rates. At the same time, our customers need to store a massive amount of persistent data without compromising on performance metrics.”

Mark Sykes, Chief Operating Officer of Kx Systems

Dell EMC DSSD for real-time tick data analytics

“Already, the results of the Dell EMC and EDB tests show that the unparalleled performance of the DSSD D5, together with flexibility of the EDB Postgres database, provides a unique platform for customers to modernize their traditional database workloads.”
